To the MAX Zucchini Muffins
Why I Love This Recipe
SO my amazingly GORGEOUS friend Max Lugavere is a host on Current TV & is a HUGE health nut, he even got me to make whole wheat empanadas at a party I catered once (will NEVER do that again for a large party, but gosh he's cute). He told me his Mom used to make him zucchini bread all the time so I came up with an alternative to keep him fit & sexy.
